I'm tring to cut costs on my XF Fairmont Ghia project. I have seen a few ea's with 5spds cheap and wondered if it would bolt up with a standard XF 5spd bellhousing. Has anyone had any experiences with this?

The bellhousing is different. The box itself would fit though (did it in xf ghia 8-) ). As luck would have it I still have a bellhousing to suit....................pm me if interested. :)

Thanks for that! I too have an XF Fairmont Ghia.

The previous owner removed the 5spd (when worn out) and put in a four to cut costs. Fortunately when I bought it he chucked in the bell housing along with alot of other spares!

I'll be selling off a four speed soon to help fund the five. Anyone interested?

Being an xf ghia would you be interested in this? I'm getting to the stage where I gunna send it in for scrap if someone doesn't take it soon :lol: . If you want it let me know cos I have reli's in NSW and they are getting a visit from my oldies shortly.

an e series 5 spd (t5) wont bolt up to a 4spd (single rail) bellhousing as far as im aware. i know for sure the t5 bellhousing have the clutch fork on the other side (to clear the cat converter)....

just a thought..

With a bit of machining, the T5 will fit a single rail bell housing...only downside is you need to bolt them together before fitting the entire assembly, as in BW506/507 series
